So many people say that after having a tummy tuck, you can't have kids again. I had a tummy tuck in July 2019 and became pregnant May 2020.
Before I got pregnant, I was 157 pounds. I had just lost 93 pounds and gotten my excess skin removed. Here is what I looked like before I got pregnant:
I gained 40 pounds during my pregnancy. I started at 157 and went to 197.
The photo of me to the left is right before I delivered my baby. As you can see, my belly really didn't stretch much.
When I got home from the hospital, I was 180 so I had lost 17 pounds.
Due to hormonal issues and insulin resistance, I gained weight in the following months and went back up to 195.
After months of research and trial and error, I ended up doing a clean ketogenic diet.
I am now 149 pounds and happy to say my results are even better than before my pregnancy.
For me, having a tummy tuck did not undo my results. I tried as hard as I could to not gain too much weight during my pregnancy to have the least effect on my results.
I got a few new tiny horizontal stretch marks but nothing major. My scar didn't stretch out and baby was perfectly healthy!
